Hello. The following is a list of issues I'm having with my PC.
I'm running an AMD-10-6800K 4.10GHZ with 8GB of ram. I have 2-250GB HDD's and windows 10 Pro 64.

Currently the PC takes about 8 mins to startup. Boot time is terrible.
When plugged into the Ethernet the unit has
54 running processes and 35 windows processes.
The startup has 32 programs in it.
The HDD is almost full to capacity but I don't have that many programs on it and even less documents. Most are on my secondary drive.
Program files- 8gb
Program files x86- 13gb
Documents- 5.20gb
Windows folder- 60gb
Music- 45gb
Photos- 3gb


The computer is constantly active on my network. It spikes my bandwidth everyday at over 2100KB/S.
They tell me this may be caused from a virus.
What's making it suck up all my bandwidth? I'm not downloading anything.
Don't know why my windows file is so big. Is that normal?

I'm not sure what to do or where to start. I currently have it disconnected from the network to save my bandwidth.

Run the built-in Disk Cleanup tool.

 

Download and run the free Autoruns tool from Sysinternals and see if everything that is automatically starting really needs to.

 

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

 

Check you hard drive for errors -

 

Type cmd.exe in the search box, and right click on the result, selecting Run as administrator.

Type chkdsk /r and press Enter.

 

Processes communicate via TCP and UDP all the time, which will show in the Perfomance >  Network section of Task Manager.

 

Which "windows file" are you referring to?

 I have started the first two items. I was only able to cleanup 140MB.

The utility has shown at least 100 Autorun items. I have no idea what I can delete, deselct for startup or leave alone...

I thought there would be more guidance in the instructions

A simpler version is to download and run the free version of Piriforms' CCleaner...

 

https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

 

When running, click on Tools on the left side of the screen and select Startup.

 

You don't want to "delete" anything.

 

You can also use the Cleaner option to get rid of unwanted junk files.

 

I would recommend not running the Registry cleaner option.

Thanks so much for the help. CC Cleaner has helped.
My bandwidth is also no longer being spiked by this wired PC.
Last night when I did the CHKDSK it was stuck on (check and repair) 29% for a couple hours. I went to bed. PC was back up today so I assume it repaired its self.
I'm using 219GB of HDD which I find impossible considering I have hardly anything saved on this computer.
This is what I meant by my windows folder in C. It's 60GB.

I would also recommend running the built-in Windows Disk Cleanup tool.

 

Then, download and run the free tool WinDirStat...

 

https://windirstat.net/

 

It will show you what file types and what folders are using the most disk space.
